Lee Gottlieb

Director of Community Engagement

As a resident of South Florida for over 40 years, Lee began his professional career with the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation. After a chance meeting with Marjory Stoneman-Douglas on the steps of the state capital, he would never look at the “river of grass” the same way again. Over the past 7 years Lee has developed and implemented over 50 eco-action programs, engaging thousands of student/parent and corporate volunteers to help restore crucial native habitat in the tri-county area. In addition, Lee has forged relationships with many Fortune 500 companies, developing new “Green Team Building” opportunities providing a venue for corporations to fulfill their community ‘give back mission statements’. With over 25 years experience in sales and marketing with several highly successful startup companies, Lee was able to take his invaluable experience to a new level when in 2012 he joined the Youth Environmental Alliance (YEA!) team as the Director of Community Outreach. Lee received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Government and Urban and Regional Planning from Florida State University. Lee’s work has been featured in the Miami Herald and the SunSentinel.
